Ride for a Reason 2018

Chartered Bus Option

We have chartered buses to transport people from Sacramento to Oakland.  Bikes belonging to riders taking the buses will be transported by trucks, generously donated to us by LuLu's Truck Rental, carefully loaded, and unloaded by trained volunteers.  These same buses will provide transportation in the morning from Oakland to the starting line’s for the 45-mile ride in Vacaville (see bus ticket details below). 

Choices explained:

  1. 45 one-way - 45-mile riders will board the bus from Tech the morning of the ride and be driven to the starting point in Vacaville. All bicycles will be transported via closed u-haul panel trucks.
  2. 45 round-trip - same as above plus the trip from Sacramento back to Tech at the end of the day. You will board the bus at the south end of the Capitolpark
    . Again, all bicycles will be transported via closed u-haul panel trucks back to tech.
  3. Return trip on our charter bus from Sacramento to Tech open to any rider.


Instructions for purchasing tickets while you are registering:
 

On the Registration page, in addition to the ride registration selection, you will see on the lower half of the page the transportation choices.

  1. Please order only one ticket by entering the number ‘1’ into the appropriate box for the transportation choice you would like to order. (If you have other riders in your family please order their transportation when they register. This will allow us to match a bus ticket to a specific rider.)
  2. Make the ride length and T-shirt choices at the bottom and click continue to finish the order.


Instructions for purchasing bus tickets or products once you have already registered

  1. It's best to first login to your rider account. (important for purchasing transportation since it ties your bus ticket to your account and auto fills the order page)
  2. Then click on the Products link in the main menu column to the left. 
  3. Please order only one ticket by entering the number ‘1’ into the appropriate box for the transportation choice you would like to order. (If you have other registered riders in your family please login to each separate registered account and order their ticket. This will allow us to match a bus ticket to a specific rider.)


Capitol Corridor/Amtrak Train

68-Mile Riders:

All 68-mile riders will meet at Oakland Technical High School at 6:45AM and ride together as a group to the train station at 7:20AM to catch the 8:15AM eastbound train to Suisun City Train Station. Riders will depart the station as a group at 9:30AM.  Click here to buy your train ticket.


All riders for the return home:
Instead of riding the bus, you can arrange your own transportation home on the Capitol Corridor train.  If you choose to take the train home, we strongly recommend purchasing a ticket on the train that departs Sacramento at 5:40 PM.  Capitol Corridor is configuring a special car for us on that train, which can accommodate up to 50 riders and their bikes. Click here to buy your train ticket.
